Everybody should stop by Cosmos Diner Restaurant to experience the one of the best diners in Wilmington.
I admit it - I love diners. I like the food, the service, and the people. Situated off Maryland Avenue south of Wilmington and just north of Newport, Cosmos Diner Restaurant is one of the best in Delaware offering all the classic diner fare plus many Greek Specialties. The restaurant has been a local stalwart for years.
Cosmos offers booths, table top, and counter dining options. The service is excellent with a great friendly staff. Having a wide variety of seating options, there is rarely a wait, and if you are bringing a large family or group, there is plenty of room to combine tables in the back. They open everyday at 6:30 and close at 9:00 except for Friday and Saturday when they remain open till 10:00.
The food is excellent with great service and hearty portions. I would personally recommend the Pastitchio, French Dip, or Omelets, but they have a wide range of standard items covering most every taste. In addition, they do have weekly specials Monday through Thursday including Chicken and Dumplings, Ham and Cabbage, and Chicken Pot Pie. These are complemented with a wide variety of additional daily specials.
Cosmos serves a great variety of Greek favorites everyday and offers periodic Greek specials. To finish off any meal, you need to try one of their pies or pastries that are baked right on the premises. I have only been there during the day/evening, but their breakfasts are renowned and are served everyday, all day.
They are easy to get to by following Newport Pike (Route 4) north from Route 141 in Newport or take Boxwood Road over to Maryland Avenue. From the Riverfront (or from downtown Wilmington), they are just a few minutes south along Maryland Avenue just beyond the intersection with DuPont Rd at 316 S Maryland Avenue.
If you love good food and fast friendly service, you have to go to Cosmos Diner Restaurant. If you just like to check out the local diners and restaurants, you need to add this to your itinerary.
Visit, Enjoy, and let me know what you think!
